Question about IB Symbols

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by El Cazador, Mar 13, 2002.

  1. I am trying to add a ticker in TWS for the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P. "INDU" works fine for the Dow Industrials but I can't find and symbols that work with TWS for Naz and S&P. Any suggestions? Thanks

    You can check for symbols under the help menu (symbol lookup).
    According to IB the symbol is 'NCI' for the Composite and 'NDX' for the Naz100 Index. I couldn't find the S&P but I didn't spend much time searching.
    Hope this helps.
  3. Thanks for the suggestion but I had tried NCI for Nasdaq... it didn't work. I e-mailed IB about it.... waited on hold long enough!
  4. I just tried NCI and the system took it. However There was no quote. I don't know if this is because it is after hours.
  5. Didn't work during hours either.

    try ndx and spx for the cash for NQ and S&P futures.
  7. Def,
    How come the symbol NCI is registered by your system, but no quotes come up?

    i am trying not to have this site return to an IB help desk. Please PM or e-mail me or the help desk with these types of questions. I'll pass the info along however and see if they can add it.
